Major Media Admit Presence of Foreign Militants in Syria, Propaganda Disintegrating_Featured_, News Flash Thursday, August 2nd, 2012
(Veterans Today) Washington planned it years ago. It wants puppet leaders installed. It’s Afghanistan/Iraq/Libya 2.0. America destroys nations to control and plunder them.
War on humanity is waged for unchallenged global dominance. Syria is ground zero. Other targeted states come later.
Proxy death squads are used. They’re heavily armed, trained and directed. They reign terror on Syrian civilians. They’ve murdered thousands of noncombatant men, women and children.
At issue is ravaging and intimidating Syria to submission. Foreign militants show no mercy. Their presence has been well known all along. Media scoundrels now admit it. At the same time, their framing deceives more than explains.
On July 29, The New York Times headlined “As Syrian War Drags On, Jihadists Take Bigger Role,” saying:
“….Syrians involved in the armed struggle say it is becoming more radicalized: homegrown Muslim jihadists, as well as small groups of fighters from Al Qaeda, are taking a more prominent role and demanding a say in running the resistance.”
Militants are largely imported, not homegrown. Many are Al Qaeda affiliated. They’re brought in from regional countries. Most Syrian regime opponents deplore violence. They want reforms, not war.
The Times said more recently “larger, more organized and better armed Syrian militant(s push) an agenda based on jihad.”
At the same time, it claimed “no significant presence of foreign combatants of any stripe in Syria….” It cited an unnamed “activist” saying around 1,000 of 50,000 fighters involved are foreigners. It added that many of them aren’t “jihadists.”
It tiptoed toward admitting that what Assad said all long is true. It suggested that “Salafist groups” and other Islamic radicals “now receive most foreign financing.”
It stopped short of explaining that Syria was lawlessly invaded. It’s waging defensive liberating battles. International law legitimizes them. No nation would stand aside and let foreign invaders ravage and control their country.
On July 26, Time magazine headlined “TIME Exclusive: Meet the Islamist Militants Fighting Alongside Syria’s Rebels,” saying:
Al Qaeda’s flag is prominently displayed. “At this stage, they remain a minor player in the conflict. (T)heir role may grow exponentially.”
In May, Time asked “Is al-Qaeda Intervening in the Conflict?” saying:
“It’s hardly a revelation (to imagine) criminal and extremist elements looking to profit from the disintegration of order. Instability….is a petri dish for radicals.”
US strategy depends on violence and instability. Peace and calm defeat Washington’s agenda. Time magazine, The New York Times, and other media scoundrels suppress information readers most need to know. Instead they’re fed managed news misinformation garbage.
Other major media also admitted the presence of foreign militants in Syria. They include AFP, Der Spiegel, London Telegraph, UK Sunday Times, South Africa’s News 24, and various lesser known publications.
BBC says they’re involved but play a minor role. BBC runs cover for imperial Britain. It has to. It’s state operated, funded and controlled. It produces propaganda. Real news, information and analysis are verboten.
Qatar’s Al Jazeera operates the same way. They and other media scoundrels mock legitimate journalism.
On July 30, Voice of Russia (VOR) headlined “Jihadists with ‘British accents’ fighting Syria’s Assad,” saying:
“Dutch journalist Jeroen Oerlemans and UK photographer John Cantlie were attacked by anti-Assad troops when crossing the Syrian border from Turkey last week.”
Their captors weren’t Syrians. They came from Pakistan, Bangladesh, Chechnya, and elsewhere. Many of them spoke English. Some did “with recognizable” British accents.
Russia Today reported the same story. It said what happened shows that “Syria has become a magnet for radical Islamists, who are there either as mercenaries or because of ideology.”
Hard core extremists among them want regional countries transformed into Islamic caliphates. Syria is the region’s only independent secular state.
Its people alone should decide how they’ll be governed. Free, fair and open elections are now held. Independent candidates and parties opposing Assad participate.
In contrast, despots run regional monarchies like Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, other Gulf states, Jordan, and Morocco. Washington extends support. They’re valued imperial allies.
So is Israel. Like America, its democracy mocks the real thing. Both countries deplore it. They don’t tolerate it at home or abroad. They wage wars to prevent it. They want unchallenged hegemonic control.
